What Are Colorblind Glasses?
Colorblind means that you can’t see the depth or richness of certain color shades. Colorblind glasses are eyeglasses with specially tinted lenses that help a colorblind person to see colors more accurately. Colorblind glasses do not cure color blindness or produce 100% normal color vision. But they enhance and partially correct certain color vision deficiencies of colorblind individuals.
Color blindness is common among people, especially in men. Blindness is an inherited condition, but can also be acquired. It can also occur if the eyes are damaged due to injury or from another disease that affects vision.
Colorblind glasses claim to assist with detecting differences between colors. They also claim to add additional vibrancy to the colors that people with color blindness may not fully experience.
Do Colorblind Glasses Work?
To understand colorblind glasses well, you need to know how color blindness happens first. The human eye contains three photopigments that are sensitive to color. These photopigments are located inside receptors in the retina called cones, which can tell your eyes how much blue, red or green is in an object. Then they give your brain information about what color objects are.
If there is not enough photopigment in your eyes, you maybe can’t see that color. Most cases of poor color vision involve red-green color deficiency. That is to say, you have the difficulty in recognizing the red and green colors.
So, how do colorblind glasses work? Colorblind glasses like Enchroma were originally manufactured as sunglasses with lens coated in a special material that exaggerated the wavelengths of light. So, it has the effect of making colors look saturated and rich.
Though colorblind glasses do not cure color blindness or produce 100% normal color vision, they allow colorblind people to perceive colors they have never seen before and experience closer-to-normal color vision while wearing special glasses for color blindness.
Types of Colorblind Glasses
Colorblind glasses come in different tints based on the type and severity of color blindness you have. If you have some eye conditions such as short sightedness or long sightedness, you may need a pair of prescription colorblind glasses. If you do not have other vision problems, you may just need a pair of non-prescription colorblind glasses. And the non-prescription colorblind glasses are cheap than the prescription ones.
